So I got the awesome opportunity to help my friend set up a 175 gallon tank. Iím trying to help her get an idea of some pricing. We want large branching pieces of wood and some medium/ large round stones.
I want to do kind of an ďislandĒ setup. One large cluster of plant and wood, and another smaller one.
She has the tank, stand, and filtration. I will be adding everything else, scaping, planting, and helping her stock the tank. I donít want a planting medium throughout the entire tank, just blasting sand and then something like fluorite for the islands. Iím planing on a lot of ferns, anubias, a sword or two, and some crypts.
I told her a round number of about $500 not including fish for her tank. Basically what Iím asking you big tank (100+gal) guys to give me a ball park of your hardscape and plant cost and maybe a picture of your setup.
I know this number can be super variable based on what type of wood, rock, sand, etc. that you use. Just trying to get a better idea of something this size.
Thank you in advance! I will post some pictures or links to tanks Iím looking at for inspiration for this project!
